Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
-family history of various autoimmune diseases
-excessive ear infections if I do not use Vaseline everyday (I have to apply it inside my ear with a q-tip lightly) If I don't do this & scrap the scabs out an ear infection will happen due to all the debris. As soon as I peel the scab off a clear sticky liquid flows out of my ear & creates a new scab
-endometriosis has ravaged my life & I have had a laproscopy to remove the endometrial tissue off my bladder
- I am unable to completely empty my bladder without some pain & discomfort
- I have congenital, cervical kyphosis (my neck is deformed -cervical spinal bones are bent or formed sitting forward) this causes eminence strain on the surrounding muscle & bone. (head & body aches, feelings of fever or "feeling sick/achy" with no viral or infection of any kind)
-poor eyesight, that became so severe I had no choice but to try lasik with no guarantee that I wouldn't have to wear glasses after.
-eyebrows falling out except where they are not suppose to be (stray hairs outside the line of eyebrow)
-knots on shin bone
- I have to take excessive amounts of muscle relaxers and Tramadol on a daily bases to be able to do the amount of work normal people do, but I feel aches and pains all day long even with the medications.
From this study (1 week ago):
I have been encountering these symptoms for almost two years. I have had blood tests more than 5 times. It all shows in WBC, fluctuate between 2700-3500 with marginal low platelets and the hematologist see it as borderline. Two ultrasound is done for my abdomen; prostate, bladder, kidneys, spline, liver and all showed normal.
From this study (4 months ago):
All of this started after I finished masturbating one night two years ago. Upon climax, I was struck with an instant, excruciating pain in my rectum and scrotum areas. My penis immediately went numb and it felt as though every muscle in my perineum was seized up. I had no control, they would not unlock at all. Later on, my whole body began to go numb, except for my insides which felt like they were full of broken glass.
Beforehand, I did have slight symptoms like these, but nothing even a tiny fraction as severe. Once in a while I would have a fullness sensation in my rectum or my abdominal muscles would lock up.
I have tried anal stimulation in the past if that is of any help. I also may have an internal rectal prolapse(may or may not be related to the stimulation).
When I have a flare-up, which is frequent, I'm unable to function on any level and am bedridden. Walking sends bolts of pain from my penis, through my buttocks, and down my legs.
Every sensation except for the pain and the internal hypersensitivity is muted. My skin will be very cold and I barely register any touch. Except for my pelvic area, where I cannot tolerate being touched or examined. It is simply too sensitive and everything is painful.
My vision seems to dim during flare-ups, and there is a constant thrumming noise in my ears that impairs my hearing. At the same time, I'm also hypersensitive to noise.
I'm unable to tolerate any temperature below 80 degrees. My body does not seem to produce enough heat. Before this happened, I worked in a cold environment without trouble. Any cold air feels like acid on my skin. It is extremely unpleasant.
No doctor has been able to give me a true diagnosis despite endless testing, including an EEG, EMG, multiple MRIs, and a CT scan.
These symptoms make no sense to me, nor can any doctor I've seen give me a diagnosis. Some of it seems like a disease, and some of it seems like an injury. I just want some relief. If I have to be gutted like a fish to fix it, so be it.
